Qatar SMS messaging regulations and restrictions

As with other Middle Eastern territories, Qatar has fairly strict messaging regulations, and it’s important to abide by these in order to get your messages delivered. Familiarize yourself with the regulations at the Ministry of Information and Communications Technology.

We recommend working with a sales advisor to ensure compliance with all SMS regulations. Get in touch now and set up your messaging program with the help of our experts.
